  1. Hi All. I have owned many low mile 73's, one with 90 miles I bought from the original owner, Justin Rosen, who owned Rosen Novak Ford in Denver CO. He bought the car for himself (got a real nice discount I'm sure), knowing that there would (supposedly) never be any Ford convertibles for sale, at least not Mustangs, ever again. Based on my experience, I believe this cars' mileage to be correct. The stripes are original to this car. The paint looks to be 100% original. The car was absolutely loaded with options from the factory (the Marti Report would confirm). I have owned and sold probably eig

  2. I think those would look really good if they were black chrome. The flat finish doesn't do it for me.

  3. A man that knows his original cars, I agree with what you see. I see the upper radiator hose with the stapled hose clamps. I just took those off of my 73. The Marti MCA approved replacements look nothing like my originals I took off. They make what they want to and sell as original nobody to say otherwise. If you got to MPD in Charlotte they have the last Cougar vert built in 1973. It has a few hundred miles on it and all of the suspension is rusty. They were rusty when they left the factory after the Wind and Rain test. Wonder where the original mats went?

  4. So close. My dream car s a 1969 Shelby Convertible, big block, red, black interior and top and of course a 4 speed. Actually I had my chance once at a '69 Shelby Fastback. Back in 1973, my wife was expecting and we had my Mach and her Pinto. Needed something with a little more trunk room, so I figured it was time to get rid of my Mach and get a family car. This was also the time the first oil embargo hit us and gas was at $1.50 a gallon, another reason to keep her Pinto and sell the Mach. So I took my Mach to the local Ford Dealer and was trying to trade it in. They did not wan

  6. My understanding is the aftermarket 2 piece rear main seals are not be made to the proper dimensions. In essence, one or both halves of the seal are too long so when installed are not properly sealing. The solution I have read is to file each seal such that the end extends .010-.020 past the end of the block or cap when the other end is flush. Once this crush dimension has been set, you clock the seal have slightly from the parting line and install with a dab of silicone as usual. Or you can buy the Kaase "one piece" rear main seal.
